While slightly disappointed that there will be no more of this series (at least that's what I am led to believe), I was happy with the quick reads that these books were. However, I do feel that it starts with the best being the first book and the last being the not-so-great of the trilogy. This one had danger, but I never truly felt like there really was any. The character of Michaela Bancroft ended up getting to be kind of irritating not only with her ambivalence towards the man who is introduc ...more

Love the horses and learning about the horse world. However, Michaela is just too nosy and impulsive. If she has any common sense, it appears it take back seat and even is buried by her need to know and poor impulse control. She sits her nose where it doesn't belong.

Yes, she's accused of murder in this book and she wants to clear herself. That doesn't mean she has the right to barge in on people and ask questions and interrogate them.

Doesn't appear there is another in the series right now, whi

IMO, not as good as the first two. The plot was a little shaky, to me, and pretty convoluted. Plus, she seemed to have too much going on, now (both the author and Michaela) to really be able to accomplish all that she has seemingly set out to do. I was expecting a really good novel, like the first one. The first one was a pleasant surprise. This one, the opposite--more like what I was expecting from the first one.

I bought the two horse lovers mysteries together thinking I'd like the horse part but there was very little about horses in this other than the main protagonist owns a tack shop and likes to ride. Like her previous effort the author gives the reader too much information, and offers too many hints for my taste. It might appeal to those who like romantic mysteries.

This is another fine mystery from Michele Scott. It kept me guessing until the end, and the characters were very easy to visualize and get to know.

At nine years old she knew she loved to write and one day wrote a short story that she showed to her dad. She’d written it on one of his legal pads. After he read it, he looked at her and said, “You are a writer ...more
